Statement on market access for Canada’s canola seed exports to China

June 21, 2021 - Ottawa, Ontario - Global Affairs Canada

Today, Global Affairs Canada issued the following statement:

“Canada is proceeding with the next step of the World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute-settlement process to restore full market access for Canada’s canola seed exports to China. Canada had previously requested consultations for the establishment of a panel on October 28, 2019.

“Canada, standing shoulder to shoulder with its farmers and workers, will take the necessary steps to ensure they have the support they need to succeed in international markets.

“Canada is confident that its canola seed exports meet China’s import requirements and is committed to regaining full market access for canola seed exports to China.

“Canada is seeking a solution that reinforces open, rules-based trade and respects international rights and obligations.”
